This page is about continuous integration servers.
buildbot (homepage) is a continous integration bot, able to communicate over mail or IRC. Used by many projects.
Buildbot can be seen as a framework to deploy continuous integration. It has no real configuration file, but what deserves this role is a file that can be thought programatically. Thus it provide a very flexible environment that can be customize for most projects needs.
Some interesting pages, might be worth reading for people willing to play with buildbot and understand its logic :
- Chromium's buildbot config, which is the one driving their builbot instance
- Buildbot's documentation
- Tor project's buildbot configuration
We currently use Jenkins. See [[our dedicated page|automated builds and tests/jenkins]] for our notes about it.
